3 Dimensional Sculpting

In math we have been learning about the differences between two dimensional shapes (flat shapes) such as triangles, circles and rectangles verses three dimensional shapes such as cylinders, cones, cubes and rectangular prisms. In art this week the challenge was to create a 3D shape using clay. It is interesting to a note how children naturally flatten objects instead of build or create 3D objects. We discussed how to roll the dough in our hands, how to pinch to create shapes and how to model parts of the shape. This week we will paint the objects. Here is the recipe we used in class.

Do you use clay at home? What things do you make?
